4th Office - The Fourth Dimension Of Organisation

In today's modern society, work patterns have changed, and more people work from home, or need to work remotely. The 4th Office can help with this.

The 4th Office is a cloud based service, with the emphasis on collaborative working, with file sharing and work management tools. Ideas, projects, tasks and updates can be shared and worked on easily in this online office space. 






The 4th Office is organised in a number of virtual zones, which are integrated seamlessly throughout.

‘My Desk’ involves collaboration tools like email, newsfeeds and messenger.

‘My Office’ neatly organises task and project management, productivity apps and to do lists.

‘My Apps’ seamlessly integrates document and file sharing.



Getting started with 4th Office

Benefits 

It allows you to allocate people into certain groups and projects.

Within each group or project you have:- 

A feed - where you can chat in real time.
An inbox - where all your private emails are stored for that group or project.
A document section - useful as everyone involved can edit or make notes on a document.

An interesting addition is the customer section. This allows you to be the 'account manager' to a number of clients. For each client tasks and documents can be shared virtually and easily, you can even allocate an individual email address to the customer (or even the project). 

If you have new people allocated to a project you can invite them via email to be part of the project and make them feel involved from the very first instance.

Branding is easy with the 4th Office as you can personalise each project with your logo, background and details, adding that professional touch to everything you do.


Signing up to the basic account with 4th Office is free, and if you are curious to what benefits it can offer you, this is a good way of exploring the website without any outlay. With the basic account you get unlimited users, guests and documents, and up to 5 projects and 5GB of storage. Upgraded solutions are priced from £8 a month for the business package from £18 a month for the Enterprise package. 

With an online help centre and a selection of apps for mobile and tablet, I personally feel it is a useful service if you are a remote worker that need to work with others on collaborative projects.


So if you are self employed working for yourself, a blogger, freelance journalist or start up entrepreneur perhaps, or you work for, or manage others, check out the free service now and let me know what you think
